All of the chain thrift stores, like Goodwill, Value Village and the Salvation Army, seem to be having sales of one kind or another this week.
I am avoiding Value Village’s half price sale today, because it mostly applies to clothing, and we simply don’t need any more!
I will be going to Goodwill’s half price sale this Friday, because it counts on dishes too! Until then, I am saving my money.
So, today I am once again highlighting some of the pieces my mom has given me over the years. I have a number of brass items, including this teapot, above.
By the way, some of these pieces could use a good polishing. But, if I waited until I got that done, I would never take the photos.
She also gave me these very cool candleholders.
Here’s a closer look at the design.
More lovely candleholders.
Tiny brass goblets.
My daughter loves to play with the goblets. Today, they are being used to care for her toy puppy, Hollie. She left specific instructions regarding Hollie’s schedule for the day. The highlighted items are optional, she told me.
This Warwick platter could possibly be the oldest item I have in my collection. It has been in my mother’s family for generations. I believe it came with them from Ireland, so that was a LONG time ago! It has obviously been broken and glued together (maybe more than once).
I just love this silverplate footed pitcher.
What is your favourite family gem?
